mendace This isn't Nirvana, its a song named Insomnia by a Brazilian band named Nill'.  Could you change the request so it is correct?


vlad9727 Disidaus Sorry, but this song isn't actually by Nirvana so I asked a forum moderator to change the request.
Sterv4 Yes, this video is helpful and my tab can be improved.  I think the tuning is still the same though.  The operative notes between my tab attempt and this video version and the record are almost the same I feel.  I will revise the tab within the next few days so it's closer to how John 5 plays it. 
mendace This is the album version, so could you please take the "Acoustic" out of the request?
I didn't really see a good way to represent this song with chords, so I did it with a tab.  I'm not sure if it's really what you were looking for, but it's the best I can do for this song.  Also, it's in Drop D tuning.
Sweet satisfaction O Lord please be mine
I wandered this world so long
Misunderstanding will plague my unrest
As long as life has breath

So hold me up don't hold me down, take my life
Take my life and sing me the song of a sad sad year
Leave my mind at peace
Lay my mind to rest

Sweet emotions run to my side
I've stumbled through life without you
O'er the oceans, o'er the hills
I will run to you

Hold me up don't hold me down
Take my life for what it's worth
Take my life and sing me the song of a sad sad year
Leave my mind at peace
Lay my mind to rest

When I'm you'll be my guide
Through the toils and snares laid before us 
When I'm gone you guide me home
I will run to you anytime I start to wander aimless
Anytime I start to wander aimless

Hold me up don't hold me down
Take my life for what it's worth
Take my life and sing me the song of a sad sad year
Leave my mind at peace
Lay my mind to rest
Joreggy528 It would depend on the song, but it could indicate one of two things.  

Most likely you would strum the chord with the missed string muted. So even though your pick hits the three strings only the notes of the two shown are heard. The same as if it were alternately written like this:

Or it could be that you are meant to use a pick on the 5th string and your finger to pluck the 3rd string, a technique called hybrid picking.
xbouncer927 Maybe some kind of time stretching effect.  Audacity has a thing call PaulStretch that is interesting.  Here is a short sample of what it does.  I strummed the chord a few times and stretched that to 15  - 

Or possibly the Spectral DroneMaker or Spectral Weave effects here - 

Not sure if you want that kind of thing because it doesn't have the same pure sound as an endless strum, but I don't know of anything closer. (Not that I'm an expert)
              1   2  3    4   5   6   7
C minor:  C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb 

             1   2  3    4    5   6    7
F minor:  F, G, Ab, Bb, C, Db, Eb
                         1   2  3    4    5   #6  7                     1   2  3    4   5   6   7
F minor with #6:  F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D,  Eb  =  C minor: C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb 

F minor instead of C minor for all intents and purposes because if you were rarely playing the D note then you were rarely doing anything with C minor. Sure, I'll do more lyrics for you. Here is my best guess for the lyrics.

Calling out against it all
Past and futures great and small
Inside your heart is headed for a fall
And shouting I am sound asleep 
When all along she has to keep
Forever I'll be watching over her

Now who are you?
Sweet Jara we wait here for you
Now who are you?
Only Jara we wait here for you 
mdelpaz3 Something like you have posted would just be played by muting the string in between like if there was an x.

On the other hand something like this would be played by plucking the indicated notes (with fingers or fingers + pick)

shawwei76 There are some other Soundgarden songs that use an EEBBBB tuning. So you could play them a half step up or tune to that and put a capo on the first fret for "Seasons". The ones I know about are: Somewhere, My Wave, The day I Tried To Live, Been Away Too Long, Worse Dreams. Plus it looks like he's playing Seasons in this video tuned EEBBBB -
Hammer-ons plus volume swells. 

He's hammering the strings with the volume off and turning the volume knob up to make the note come in.
bootcutboy Here is what I have come up with for this




| /// Tremolo Pick
| / Slide Up
| \ Slide Down

AnrBjotk It makes it harder to play, but you can keep it in standard tuning and put the capo on the 2nd fret instead of the 4th.




Oops it actually is in a different tuning. Drop D with the b string tuned down to A.




AnrBjotk It's in Drop D, but otherwise regular tuning.  I can do this tomorrow (~12 hours from now) if you don't get it or somebody else doesn't post  it.
mreis3010 It is.  At the bottom right after the "suggest correction" it says  "Give kudos to tab author, rate the tab!" and you can rate it from there.
Folkling_  I can't, sorry.  I'm not strong in that area.
UGMKZ, h0spid Strange, this must have also happened to me a few days ago for a Tyler Hilton tab.  I got an e-mail and a notification that I had been asked to a Tyler Hilton tab and I really had no idea why.  I didn't recognize the user who asked and I'd never heard of Tyler Hilton so I was just confused as to...why me.
I was just playing it in a simplified way, strumming once per chord along with the words.
xristosarta71 I didn't see this as a chord type at all, so I tried it as a tab type if you are interested -
I do think I hear the low note in there. Maybe A#º7/F# (212020), but I'm not sure.
I'm not 100% convinced with this, but I took a pass at it. I was thinking that this might by half step down, but I just went with the capo one like you did. A lot of the time I found it to work better higher up the neck though to get some higher notes in there.

Where you have Em's, I didn't really hear that. If anything I'd guess it was the low E string, but still pretty much just the A7 chord.
For me, I felt that most of the G's worked better as what I called A7*. (x02023)
The E7 on "Once you were gold" sounds much better played as 0799910.
Hope it helps some.

The sky's as deep as it can be
Bend down the branches

Close your eyes and you will see
Bend down the branches

You're like a willow
Once you were gold
We're made for bending
Even beauty gets old

Climb the stairs they're not so steep
Bend down the branches
Close your eyes and go to sleep
Bend down the branches

Swans - Little Mouth
Tilt - Berkley Pier
Jennifer Rostock - Der Gartner
Jennifer Rostock - Schlag Alarm
Jennifer Rostock - Zwischen Laken und Lugen

stargazer1701, no, only requests from 2017 are visible at the moment. The thought behind that is that it's better to have 200 requests that actually have a chance of being completed than having 5,500 that no one will look at

I was working on a handful of old ones. What' s best for that? Just submit them and forget about the request aspect or wait for something to change again?
You don't need to suggest a correction to yourself, you can edit your own tab from your "My Contributions" page if you need to correct something.
Here are the lyrics:

If you want to meet me come on down

If you want to see me on the town

I will bring some of my mistakes

And you will bring a smile right to my face

How am I going to find you in the crowd?

You going to wear an outfit that's so damn loud

You could put the peacocks all to shame

I'll try to find a shirt that's got no stains

You go window shopping down the lane

Me, I'm always singing in the rain

Someone threw a kiss off the balcony

Someone else is bended on one knee

Why don't we go drink up all these lights

There's no place that I'd rather be tonight

There's an angel appearing in a small cafe

You make me feel like I might float away

Oohh Oohh Yeah

Oohh Oohh Yeah

Oohh Yeah

Yes, it worked now. Thanks for getting it straightened out.

It still doesn't work for me. I tried to reject this one -
I wrote "Spam" in the field which is what the other reject voter wrote.

I have Windows 7 and Firefox 47.0.1

I see from my earlier examples my vote is now there on the Amanda Seyfried song and it isn't/wasn't there on the John Cougar Mellencamp song.

EDIT:: I just tried it with Chrome and it worked with the example I just posted -
UG Support
The one I voted to approve and it included my previous rejection comment isn't there now, but it was the The Good, the Bad and The Ugly theme.

The one's that I could find and/or remember that I wanted to vote to reject were:

John Cougar Mellencamp - Small Town -
because "Hayseed" is the correct word.

Amanda Seyfried - Little House -
because the song doesn't end on G the way the correction wants it.
In the new correction voting queue from "My Contributions" it is letting me approve corrections but not letting me reject them.

Also after I tried unsuccessfully to reject one I voted to approve a different one and it worked, but it also printed my rejection comment, so it looks confusing now.
Hello, I tried this for you.

I actually saw your first post in the New Members thread and gave the song a try but I couldn't get it to sound right so I left it for maybe somebody else to do. Since you asked again I took another look at it and what I came up with is basically power chords with a flat five rather than regular power chords for much of the song. That's what sounded the best to me and you can see if you like it that way or with just regular power chords.

Unfortunately I didn't know there were different versions so I made my tab from this version -

And then just right now I found out that the Landshark / Where The Wild Things Are Version is not the exact same. It sounds similar so this tab might be close enough to show you the song.

Anyway, I put it as an attachment text file.

I hope it helps.
Maybe something like the Boss eBand. Not sure how much you are looking to spend. The JS-10 is kind of expensive. You might be able to find an older JS-8 still.

There seem to be a number of others that you can plug a CD or MP3 player into, but it didn't sound like that was really what you were looking for.
I noticed this yesterday in the approved list. It stuck out to me as I am a fan of the rock band Belly.

This song -

is by a different artist named Belly but who is not currently in the system.
